Austria’s kings of death/black metal art, BELPHEGOR, have uploaded the video clip for “Impaled Upon the Tongue of Sathan“ music video to the following location (http://www.bloody-disgusting.com/news/music/1300). “We decided to anchor the clip on Bloody-Disgusting.com, to avoid censorship troubles with moral persecutors,” commented the bands bass player Serpenth.
The clip was shot and edited this past October by director Alexander Koenig in Abtenau, Austria. Keeping with the concept of the forthcoming Blood Magick Necromance, album the crew went through over 60 liters of fresh blood within two nights of shooting. Smashing all oppressive morals with anti-Christian sentiment, the band presents a raw look at depraved blood rites which celebrate the liberation of man through death.
As Serpenth previously stated: “The clip aims to strip down the viewer’s psyche with an onslaught of sadistic sex, musick and magick. The ritual action caught on tape was also inspired in part by the world famous works of Viennese Actionists (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viennese_Actionism) such as Hermann Nitsch and Gunter Brus. Rachael Kozak took over the role of the possessed Sukkubus. As Pro-Domina she was perfect and totally into the role.
BELPHEGOR will be direct support to the legendary SEPULTURA this April/May soon after their tour with DEICIDE! The band will also take part in a handful of special headlining shows in the midst of the tour.
BELPHEGOR will be direct support to DEICIDE on the “God Is Dead – To Hell With God Tour”, which kicks off on Feb. 15th of next year. The trek is being sponsored by Bloody-Disgusting.com. For more dates and info visit www.belphegor.at and www.myspace.com/belphegor.
Blood Magick Necromance was produced by the legendary Peter Tägtgren at his Abyss Studios (IMMORTAL, DIMMU BORGIR, HYPOCRISY, etc.) in Pärlby, Sweden and mastered by Jonas Kjellgren. The album will be released on January 14th, 2011 in Europe and on February 8th, 2011 in North America!
